With privacy, views, cutting edge technology and exquisite design, this remarkable gated estate will set the bar for Lake Austin properties. Ames Design Build used the best of everything to create an architectural masterpiece in a waterfront setting.
This to be built modern masterpiece is situated on 2.4 pristine acres with thoughtful, manicured landscaping. Directly across the 105 feet of Lake Austin frontage, is a nature preserve, which enhances the property’s privacy and tranquility.
Enter the luxurious estate through the monitored gates and a caretakers cottage to wind your way down to this peaceful retreat. Beyond the dramatic porte-cochere entrance and motor court with four-car garage, the tranquil courtyard invites visitors to the residence. An impressive pivot door in the entryway reveals a floating staircase and phenomenal views of the lake through two story walls of glass. The design of the home utilizes an open concept floor plan that centers around a two-story great room and features a gorgeous steel fireplace covered with glass. The Great Room space flows seamlessly to the kitchen, dining, and outdoors capturing the breathtaking reflection of the lake from every vantage point. The stunning kitchen is equipped with Gaggenau appliances, a calacatta quartzite island and a full scullery kitchen behind closed doors for catering and entertaining. Adjacent to the kitchen is the adult lounge with a wine bar, media center and access to the main patios via fully pocketing glass doors on both sides. A wet edge pool is situated at the perfect elevation to appear as it if vanishes into the lake on the horizon. The master suite is located on the main level with a private patio and spa-like bath. Completing the main level are two offices, a guest suite and a state of the art wellness center equipped with a sauna and private garden. The second level features two additional guest suites and another sky tower lounge with a large terrace overlooking the lake. In addition to the main house, there is a separate one bedroom guest house with living area and full kitchen. Otiima sliding doors retreat into the walls allowing the inside and outside to meld. Multiple covered terraces and patios provide many options for relaxing or entertaining. On peaceful Austin evenings, enjoy dinner al fresco in the courtyard or sit poolside by the fireplace and soak in the views. Beyond the main house and pool is yet another lakefront entertainment area with a second wet edge plunge pool plus outdoor kitchen and bar. Making the lakeside lifestyle complete is the two-slip boat dock with rooftop party deck perfect for enjoying Austin sunsets with friends.
The estate uses the latest in residential technology and features a Savant home automation system that includes Lutron Lights, audio visual components throughout, and security. In addition, the home is prewired for the Tesla Powerwall Whole-House battery backup system and has a pre-installed Tesla High Speed Charging Station.
